If Canada is going to regain and increase productivity levels, organizations need to focus more on the human side of productivity; improved technology is not the sole answer to working better or faster. Another method to increase productivity is for “employees to want to give more to an organization, and to be happy to do so” (quote from an HR Director, Bay Street law firm).

So, how do you get employees to give more? By demonstrating from an organization’s perspective the three qualities of engagement: transparency, partnering and responsiveness.

What Employee Engagement Looks Like
An engaged employee is one who expends discretionary effort, is emotionally connected to the organization and accepts accountability.

Strong indicators of an engaged employee include:
a) Assuming responsibility beyond their role
b) Helping team members work toward a common goal
c) Generating new ideas
d) Speaking positively about the organization and its products/services
e) Accepting accountability for actions, behaviours and performance level.
